1. "Dia tahu, bahawa sultan dan pembesar negeri Melaka itu sudah maklum sejak tahun 1448, pasti Portugis akan datang kembali menyerang! Tetapi kenapa Melaka hanya sibuk menyediakan damak untuk racun pada anak panahnya, tetapi tidak menyediakan timah, untuk 38 pucuk meriam besarnya yang dibeli dari Turki? Kenapa Melaka mampu berbelanja untuk dayang-dayang istana, sultan dan pembesar negeri berlebihan waktu dan tenaga untuk menggiliri selir, tetapi tidak berbelanja membina armada? Kenapa Melaka begitu mudah beri gelar laksamana kepada pendekar silat, tetapi tidak membina kekuatan daya tempur angkatan laut?"

2. "The war for the Narmada valley is not just some exotic tribal war, or a remote rural war or even an exclusively Indian war. Its a war for the rivers and the mountains and the forests of the world. All sorts of warriors from all over the world, anyone who wishes to enlist, will be honored and welcomed. Every kind of warrior will be needed. Doctors, lawyers, teachers, judges, journalists, students, sportsmen, painters, actors, singers, lovers . . . The borders are open, folks! Come on in."
Author: Arundhati Roy
3. "As the long limousine purred to life Edwina felt as if she were Elizabeth, setting sail to battle the Spanish Armada. She was Elizabeth, damn it! What she had built no one was going to take away from her. Not her house, not her hotels, not her fine stable of horses -- and most especially not the young thoroughbred she had left sleeping by the side of her Olympic-size outdoor pool. Some pleasures, she decided, were simply too enticing to give up."
Author: Barbara Taylor Bradford

I've never seen anyone get soexcited over books before. You'd think they were diamonds.""Well, they are, aren't they? Isn't there anything you love like that? And don't say ‘spats' or ‘lawn tennis' or something silly.""Good Lord," he said with mock horror, "it's like she knows me already."
Author: Cassandra Clare

7. "Just across from Bismarck stood Fort Lincoln where friends and relatives of Custer's dead cavalrymen still lived, and these emigrating Sioux could perceive such bitterness in the air that one Indian on the leading boat displayed a white flag. Yet, in accordance with the laws of human behavior, the farther downstream they traveled the less hostility they encountered, and when the tiny armada reached Standing Rock near the present border of South Dakota these Indians were welcomed as celebrities. Men, women and children crowded aboard the General Sherman to shake hands with Sitting Bull. Judson Elliot Walker, who was just then finishing a book on Custer's campaigns, had to stand on a chair to catch a glimpse of the medicine man and reports that he was wearing "green wire goggles." No details are provided, so green wire goggles must have been a familiar sight in those days. Sitting Bull mobbed by fans while wearing green wire goggles. It sounds like Hollywood."
Author: Evan S. Connell
8. "Úrsula se perguntava se não era preferível se deitar logo de uma vez na sepultura e lhe jogarem a terra por cima, e perguntava a Deus, sem medo, se realmente acreditava que as pessoas eram feitas de ferro para suportar tantas penas e mortificações. E perguntando e perguntando ia atiçando sua própria perturbação e sentia desejos irreprimíveis de se soltar e não ter papas na língua como um forasteiro e de se permitir afinal um instante de rebeldia, o instante tantas vezes desejado e tantas vezes adiado, para cortar a resignação pela raiz e cagar de uma vez para tudo e tirar do coração os infinitos montes de palavrões que tivera que engolir durante um século inteiro de conformismo.– Porra! – gritou.Amaranta, que começava a colocar a roupa no baú, pensou que ela tinha sido picada por um escorpião.– Onde está? – perguntou alarmada.– O quê?– O animal! – esclareceu Amaranta.Úrsula pôs o dedo no coração.– Aqui – disse"
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
9. "¡Carajo! -gritó.Amaranta, que empezaba a meter la ropa en el baúl, creyó que la había picado un alacrán.-¡Dónde está! -preguntó alarmada.-¿Qué?-¡El animal! -aclaró Amaranta.Úrsula se puso un dedo en el corazón.-Aquí -dijo."

10. "Gidip rüzgara daha yakindan bakalim mi?" "Belki de herkese göre bir yer var dünyada", diyorum, "Herkese göre biri var ama herkes dogru yerde degil." "Tipki bir düsteki gibi dokundugun anda darmadagin olacak bir kadin." "Pervasizca dokundugumuz her seyi toza çevirmiyor muyuz zaten?"

11. "Her sabah uyandigimizda, günlük 86 bin 400 saniyelik kredi açiliyor bize; aksam yataga yattigimizda yarina hiçbir sey kalmiyor, gün içinde yasanmayan kaçmis, dün bitmis oluyor. Her sabah bu büyü yeniden basliyor, hesabimiza yeniden yasamin 86 bin 400 saniyesi yatiriliyor ve su degismez kuralla oynuyoruz: Banka, önceden uyarmadan, istedigi zaman hesabimizi kapatabilir: Yasam her an bitebilir. Öyleyse, günlük 86 bin 400 saniyemizi ne yapiyoruz? Yasamin saniyeleri, dolarlardan çok daha önemli degil mi?"
Author: Marc Levy

Los había enganchado a los suyos y avanzaba. No me veía haciéndole lo que yo había sufrido que me hiciesen."

Author: Mehmet Ali Çelikel
15. "Like Keats he may wander through the old-world forests of Latmos, or stand like Morris on the galley's deck with the Viking when king and galley have long since passed away. But the drama is the meeting-place of art and life; it deals, as Mazzini said, not merely with man, but with social man, with man in his relation to God and to Humanity. It is the product of a period of great national united energy; it is impossible without a noble public, and belongs to such ages as the age of Elizabeth in London and of Pericles at Athens; it is part of such lofty moral and spiritual ardour as came to Greek after the defeat of the Persian fleet, and to Englishman after the wreck of the Armada of Spain."
Author: Oscar Wilde
16. "The Encyclopedia--the advance artillery of reason, the armada of philosophy, the siege engine of the enlightenment..."
Author: Peter Prange
17. "Next, PleaseAlways too eager for the future, wePick up bad habits of expectancy.Something is always approaching; every dayTill then we say,Watching from a bluff the tiny, clearSparkling armada of promises draw near.How slow they are! And how much time they waste,Refusing to make haste!Yet still they leave us holding wretched stalksOf disappointment, for, though nothing balksEach big approach, leaning with brasswork prinked,Each rope distinct,Flagged, and the figurehead with golden titsArching our way, it never anchors; it'sNo sooner present than it turns to past.Right to the lastWe think each one will heave to and unloadAll good into our lives, all we are owedFor waiting so devoutly and so long.But we are wrong:Only one ship is seeking us, a black-Sailed unfamiliar, towing at her backA huge and birdless silence. In her wakeNo waters breed or break."
Author: Philip Larkin
18. "…Böyle acz içindeyken odamda her sey bana küçüklügümü ve zavalliligimi haykiriyor. Sokaga firliyorum. Bir tek çehre görsemde yaninda yürüsem, hiç ses çikarmadan yürüsem diyorum. Halbuki ara sira karsilastigim ahbaplari görmemezlige geliyorum. Hiçbiri bana bu anda yardima çagrilacak kadar yakin görünmüyor. Bilmem beni anliyor musunuz?..."
